Clark Count Schools Combat Hunger_kids
More than 58% of Clark County School District students receive free or reduced-price meals (FRL) during the school year. Many of those children do not have consistent access to food on the weekends when school is not in session.

“BackPack for Kids” Program

To help fill this need, Three Square, in partnership with the Clark County School District, provides a bag of nutritious, kid-friendly, shelf-stable food to children who lack adequate food over the weekend.

Kids Cafe® Program

Often times for students on the FRL program, their school lunch is the only guaranteed meal of the day. Three Square started Kids Cafe®, a program of Feeding America, designed to ensure that children without access to regular nutrition receive a nutritional meal after school, in the late afternoon.

Three Square collaborates with multiple Community Partners including 21st Century Community Learning Centers, After-School All-Stars, the Clark County School District, Nevada Department of Agriculture, and SafeKey to provide after school meals to children in need.

Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)

The Summer Food Service Program provides nutritious meals to children 18 years of age or younger in low-income areas during the summer. The program ensures that children’s nutritional needs are met during their school vacation when "free and reduced price" meals are not available. SFSP is funded through the USDA and administered by the Nevada Department of Agriculture.

Southern Nevada’s Summer Food Service Program is a collaborative effort between Three Square Food Bank, Nevada State Department, Clark County School Distritct and other community partners.
